Ulendo Taxi joins ZamPay’s payment revolution
ZAMTEL has today announced the signing of a partnership with fast growing ride hauling firm Ulendo Taxi for the deployment of ZamPay, a mobile payment platform.
Following this partnership, the over 20,000 Ulendo customers will now have a payment option that is quick and seamless thereby significantly improving customer experience.
All the 6,000 Ulendo taxis will be fitted with ZamPay which will enable drivers to automatically charge customers by making contactless transactions through QR codes.
Zamtel Head of Corporate and Government Affairs Mr. Reuben Kamanga signed the partnership with Ulendo Taxi Chief Executive Officer Mr. Haggai Mandefu at a media event at Zamtel House in Lusaka.
Mr. Kamanga said the partnership with Ulendo Taxi underscores Zamtel’s commitment to the development of a cashless society and the enhancement of the mobile wallet experience for consumers across the country.
He said the onboarding of Ulendo Taxi will increase customer choice and offer a world class safe and secure payment experience for riders.
Mr Kamanga said the use of digital payment platforms such as ZamPay is critical in reducing the cost of doing business and eliminate cash handling risks for taxi drivers.
He further stated that embracing digital payment solutions like ZamPay will fast-track Government’s efforts towards achieving a cashless culture and economy.
“All transactions are encrypted and ZamPay QR code allows taxi businesses to benefit from top security technology. Further, carrying cash can be dangerous for the driver, as it increases the risk of theft, using ZamPay significantly minimizes that risk,” Mr Kamanga said.
He added, “The payment process is significantly faster when using ZamPay as payments through QR codes are processed immediately, in real-time. This is a huge advantage compared to the time it takes to exchange cash. Increased speed means drivers can spend more time picking up customers and less time processing payments or counting change at the end of a journey. This means they can have more time to service more customers, and of course, this streamlined payment process also increases customer satisfaction.”
And Ulendo Taxi Zambia Chief Executive Officer Mr. Haggai Mandefu commended Zamtel for the partnership saying it will significantly boast traffic as more customers on Ulendo will have payment options.
He said the partnership enables Ulendo to provide optimal customer service and demonstrates the firm’s commitment to embracing new payment platforms.
“Not only is this more convenient than cash, but payment options such as ZamPay will cater to the payment preferences of a wider range of our customers and this improves customer convenience in situations where the driver may not have change,” Mr Mandefu said.

Copperbelt Gears Up for Its Inaugural Motor Show: A Vision of Innovation and Opportunity
Copperbelt Province is set to host its first-ever Copperbelt Motor Show, following the success of the Lusaka Motor Show, an event that has been running for the past 11 years. The most recent Lusaka Motor Show took place at East Park Mall Piazza in November 2022, attracting over 60 brands. Beginning this year, the organizers will be expanding their reach by hosting shows in both Copperbelt in May and Lusaka in October.
The Copperbelt Motor Show will be held at the luxurious Garden Court Kitwe Hotel, a property located in the heart of Copperbelt, from May 5th to 7th, 2023. The General Manager of Garden Court Kitwe has expressed excitement about hosting the event, which not only creates a platform for the motor and mining industry but also promotes local tourism. Many exhibitors from Lusaka are expected to attend and participate in the grand event, and the hotel is proud to be a partner in the Copperbelt Motor Show.
As the largest motoring exhibition the Copperbelt has ever seen, the show will feature the latest cars, trucks, buses, bikes, batteries, tyres, lubricants, tracking facilities, spare parts dealers, insurance providers, road safety, mining equipment, and leasing. A section dedicated to classic cars will also be available, catering to automotive enthusiasts and collectors alike.
The show aims to attract a broad audience from across the Copperbelt Province, providing a platform for buyers and sellers to connect directly. Dealers can address their clients’ concerns firsthand and offer tailored solutions. The event also presents an excellent opportunity for procurement heads and directors to compare prices, quality, durability, and other factors of various products, as many brands will be offering exclusive deals and offers.
Director Mr. Bobby Singh has acknowledged the overwhelming response from their followers, with comments describing the event as “history in the making.” This feedback has motivated Singh and his team to create a platform that benefits everyone involved.
The Copperbelt Motor Show is poised to positively impact economic growth by creating jobs, increasing demand, and fostering networking opportunities that can transform into business ventures. As the region prepares for this groundbreaking event, the Copperbelt Motor Show is set to become a staple in the Zambian automotive and mining industries, driving innovation, collaboration, and growth for years to come.
